scheduled to hit the economy for this current fiscal year taking us all the way to september of next year. as for what the president's position will be, we're still waiting for word from the president. other democrats have been discussing where they are on this, the president won reelection, they expanded their majority in the senate, and therefore voters have token, they want tax increases on wealthier americans to pay for other priorities and reduce the deficit. hearing from some republicans as well, john boehner scheduled to speak a short while from now. he says he's open to discussing. you're seeing these decisions, is not unlike what we saw before the election. talking an overall rewrite of the tax system, democrats looking for tax rate increases on families earning more than $250,000 per year. back to you. connell: fox news contributor and author of our favorite titled book. i guess we can modify it to say with what happened later today. do you think he goes to the middle or dig into the left? >> there were so many bizarre things that happened over the tuesday night election results
. >> this week, i called for action by both parties on a plan to help our economy grow and create jobs, which is critical to solving our debt. it's also critical to averting the so-called fiscal cliff, a combination of automatic spending cuts and tax rate increases that's just weeks away from taking effect. some have said that despite the risks, we should let our nation's economy go off part of the fiscal cliff in january, by allowing the top two rates to rise. they believe that doing that will generate more revenue for the federal government. but here's the problem with that. raising those rates on january 1 would, according to the independent firm ernst & young, destroy 700,000 american jobs. that's because many of those hit by this tax increase are small business owners -- the very people who are the key to job creation in america. i used to be one of them. this week, i offered congratulations to president obama -- along with an alternative to sending our economy over any part of the fiscal cliff. instead of raising tax rates on the american people and accepting the damage it will do to ou
implications for orientation, not just generally, how it affects the economy, but also in the middle east, something that has to be thought about. there's also the question of the future of the european union which will have an impact, again, not only on the economy, but could also have an impact in terms of what happens in the middle east. we could reserve some of the questions for the q&a, but what i'd like to focus on are a few of the key issues i think are most immediate and prominent. starting with iran. i think 2013 will be a decisive year. for people with long memories, say say, well, gee, people talk about iran for a long time, and every year it's supposed to be the decisive year. why do i say this year? two reasons. one, i think, actually, the impact of sanctions is profound. for the first time, it's truly profound in the case of iran. we have the supreme leader, two weeks ago, referring to the sanctions being brutal, his words. the sanctions are brutal. this is someone whose said on an ongoing basis, looked, we lived with sanctions since the beginning of the islamic republic, th
towards saving the country's economy were dropping off the so-called fiscal cliff which one of our guest tonight more aptly calls the austerity bomb. >> pass a law right now that would prevent any tax hike whatsoever on the first $250,000 of everybody's income. we should not hold the middle class hostage while we debate tax cuts for the wealthy. we should at least do what we agree on, and that's to keep the middle class taxes low. >> eliot: the president also emphasized what he would not do a sending time to make a tax deal with house republicans. >> obama: what i'm not going to do is to extend bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 2% that we can't afford and according to economists, will have the least positive impact on our economy. >> eliot: mr. obama also waded into the scandal that saw general david petraeus step down as director of the c.i.a. he offered assurances that damage from petraeus' affair was at least so far confined to the general and his family, and offered some words of support. >> obama: i have no evidence at this point from what i've seen that classified information was di
-book "beyond outrage:what has gone wrong with our economy and our democracy and how to fix it" is now available on paper work. good evening. >> good evening. >> eliot: i want to pars where the republicans are. has the republican relationship willing to increase marginal tax rates. >> no, they have not said that they're willing to increase marginal tax rates at all. they said they're willing to increase revenues which is different from increasing rates. you can increase revenues by closing a few loopholes, putting a limit on certain deductions but they have not come around in any way something that equals grover norquist and the pledge. >> eliot: i don't want to jump on the media for mischaracterizing but the media wants to see a conversion of interest or views between the president and john boehner. i'm not sure that i see it yet. the president said you have to go to the clinton area, 36% top marginal rate. and you said a few loopholes that's fine but not the real battle we should be undertaking. am i correct? >> now boehner we're back to where we were before the election in some respects. ther
on the rich, you're going to destroy our economy." not true! >> in the hotly contested 8th district tammy duckworth is going to congress. >> we have joe donnelly defeat republican tea party-backed richard mourdock. >> dave the screaming behind you is because claire mccaskill was nominated. allan west appears to have lost to his opponent patrick murphy. >> jennifer: last night was just not kind to tea party republicans. four of its most famous faces went down in defeat. michele bachmann eked out a third term but it cost her a pretty penny, actually more than $20 million. she outspent her opponent 12-1 and she only won 50.59% of the vote. in all at least 47 tea party house remembers retained their seethes with the help of obscene amounts of money. so where does the gop go from here? tonight we're putting that question to j.d. hayworth and duf sundheim. who is joining me here in studio. i want to thank you both for bringing both ends of the spectrum. j.d. just two years ago, there were 60-newly elected lawmakers who swept into congress and now some of the most prominent a
in chicago. he's back here, and the real work begins starting with the economy including that fiscal cliff that you mentioned. taxes and budget problems that could kick in by the end of this year. >> i am looking forward to reaching out and working with leaders of both parties to meet the challenges we can only solve together. >> reporter: fresh off his election victory, president obama's already been on the phone with top democrats and republicans in congress urging them to compromise before america falls off the fiscal cliff. what's that? long-term unemployment benefits and the 2% payroll tax cut expiring, a big cut in medicare payments, and your taxes going up january 1 if congress doesn't act. plus, another $500 billion in cuts at the pentagon. boeing, the military's second largest supplier, already announced a second round of executive layoffs. >> nobody wants to see this fiscal cliff without a deal because the cuts are severe and the tax increases are severe and so we've got to find a path forward. >> reporter: on capitol hill leaders signaled compromise. >> compromise is not a dirty
are going to spend all this money then yes. taxes are less damaging to the economy than the deficits that replace them but the real problem is spending. the reason taxes have to go up is the government is spending so much money so if your taxes go up in your upset then stop voting -- [talking over each other] dagen: so much spending is built in to our future. medicare for example is 13.5% of government spending as it is. are we destined for much higher taxes? forget high tax rates close to 40%, let's start talking about 60% because we are never going to cut the government spending because we have become addicted to it. >> we are going to pay the tax one way or another either legitimately or we are going to pay through inflation because they're not going to and the integrity to raise taxes, they will crank up the printing presses and take our purchasing power, not our money so prices will go through the roof and the increase in the price of everything you have to buy will be another tax in disguise. we need to cut medicare and social security, not in the future, we need to cut the che
timing of this. we explore the economy and everything else tonight on fox business. that will do it here. good night. >> andrea: this is a fox news alert. breaking news. in tonight from washington, we just learned a short while ago that general david petraeus, the director of the c.i.a. resign from his post citing personal reasons. specifically,en extramarital affair. joining us with the details and latest development on the surprising news is "special report" host bret baier. bret? >> c.i.a. director resigned as the nation's top spy saying he had engaged in an extra marital affair and his words showed extremely poor judgment. the story developed late today after words spreading of a hastily scheduled meeting for petraeus at the white house thursday. >> does the president have full faith and confidence in president petraeus? >> the president thinks general petraeus has done an excellent job. >> he believes general petraeus did an excellent job. no personnel announcements to make today. >> as the briefing was going on, details started to emerge about the resignation and letter to
to austerity too early. we pushed the economy back into a recession. this would reduce gdp by about 3 percentage points. maybe a little bit higher. since we're only growing at about 2, that would put us into negative territory for all of 2013 and get unemployment back into the 9% range. >> bill: when we're talking about the fiscal cliff we're talking about what is also called sequestration. >> sequestration is part of it. fiscal cliff on january 1, a bunch of tax increases about $500 billion. on january 2nd, it is about $120 billion in spending cuts. the combination $600 billion or so would be the largest one-year nominal reduction in the deficit in history. >> bill: in one year. >> in one year. it is what all of the deficit hawks have been wanting and now they're saying let's not go there here. you've got the ceos from all of the companies saying basically stop the fiscal cliff. what they're really saying is we like higher deficits. they're good. >> bill: what brought about the fiscal cliff? >> it is a combination of
in this country of the vital viewed. the last thing you want to do in this economy is raise the price of their productivity. connell: i find that very interesting of a response. you are saying they would be in the minority party if they go along with his advice which is essentially to let the taxes go up on $1 million or more instead of to 50,000. does the party take the blame for that and isn't that a bigger risk, politically? >> i do not think so. let's look at what happened on tuesday. they get the republicans in the house of representatives. that was their way of trying to say we want you to remain in control here. if the republicans pull back and raise taxes, they will pay for it in a big way in 2014. connell: what if they allow revenues to go off in another way? broaden the base of people who pay taxes and then close some of these loopholes and that that you bring in more revenue. would that be acceptable? >> we do not have a revenue problem. if the republicans compromise as in a lower income tax rates, -- connell: less than 50 days until this so-called fiscal cliff. what do you
are critical in order to get the economy growing again and people back to work. and i think that is the over -- it's certainly the number one domestic challenge. my point is it's always the number one national security challenge. why? because a healthy economy and a healthy balance sheet undergirds everything we do internationally. it funds our military, it gives strength to our diplomacy, it allows us to be an attractive trading partner which gives us economic influence. it undergirds everything we do overseas. but secondly, it also undergirds the power of the american idea. the american idea is political democracy and free markets makes for a stable situation in the long term but also makes for a prosperous society that is able to deliver on its people. that is really what america has stood for. and by our failure to resolve our own problems and get our economy growing and going again, we undermine the strength of the american idea internationally. and that's why countries are flirting with this notion of, well, maybe china has it right; state capitalism plus keeping your people in line. a
predict that going over the fiscal cliff is going to wreak havoc on the economy. it's called the fiscal cliff. it's described in the suicidal terms. it is apocalyptic. it is armageddon, the end of everything we hold dear. today, the horror was amplified by a new congressional budget office report that said that if we did go over the fiscal cliff we're going to head back into recession, the unemployment rate would spike to over 9%. terrible picture! but dear junkies, take a deep breath. because it ain't gonna happen. mark my words. the one thing that congress loathes more than losing elections is getting their rear ends handed to them by every newspaper, businessperson and senior citizen clinging to an i.r.a. they cannot handle the heat of doing nothing. so believe me, they will act. i predict that they're going to extend the deadline until after the new congress arrives to give them time to work out a deal. it's going to be all over in a couple of months and it is going to be a fair and balanced solution. an

[ cheers and applause ] >> jennifer: well, that's new hampshire's governor elect, maggie hassan at her victory speech on tuesday night. and next year she will be the nation's only female democratic governor. new hampshire voters made an interesting bit of history this week, because they el elected the first, all-women delegation to washington. senator jean chaking, and another senator, and then two other women in the house. tonight i'm actually go pleased to be able to welcome maggie hassan into "the war room." maggie so glad to have you, and congratulations on your wig win. >> thank you so much. it's great to be with you. >> all right. now new hampshire comes across as this macho -- to those outside of new hampshire,
have to solve the problem or our economy will be in the tank in the not too distant future. connell: you said they still have a couple years, maybe two years, before the market really get that is, the bond market, and the interest rates start to shoot up. before we see that, will we see the necessary action was not if you still have low rates, it is not necessarily force the low hand. >> that is right. i think if we get to the point where the market starts to take action to discipline our habit, it is too late for policymakers. that is why we have to do this soon. we cannot wait until the market is tired of this and start imposing higher interest rates which will lead to the devaluing of the dollar and lower standards of living. we will probably make it okay, but do we want to leave it for the people who follow us? i do not think so. connell: the second part i wanted to ask you about was revenue and the republican mindset on this. looking at comments the last few days, it seems as if people are more inclined to say, whatever you call it, rates were closing the loopholes, we will hav
as a business leader who could create jobs and fix the economy. but when we asked who'd do a better job of handling the economy, romney ended up with only about a one-point advantage here, 49% to 48%. so the president effectively neutralized the economy issue which had been thought to be so dangerous for him. scott? >> pelley: anthony, thanks very much. as nancy cordes was just telling us, we're about seven weeks from those automatic tax increases and budget cuts that are due to kick in automatically. congress design the so-called fiscal cliff to be so painful that it would force a compromise between the white house and capitol hill. but the voters have returned the same politicians wh politicianst reach a deal last time. here's wyatt andrews. >> just weeks away from now loom it is so-called fiscal cliff. >> reporter: under pressure from the fiscal cliff, house speaker john boehner started a public negotiation with the president. saying republicans would accept an increase in tax revenues if they're tied to tax and entitlement reform. day one after the election and the speaker said it w
with the republicans like we did last august and nothing gets done and the economy tanks again for a second recession and i'm going down in history as a double failure. >> he can't let that happen. >> at some point he has to pull back from the paul krugmans of the world and the people on the far left, not far left but left, and say i'm president, you're a columnist. >> right. he has -- he's going to get a lot of flack from both his own left flank and the right. he has to accept that. he cannot as a responsible adult let the economy go -- let us go over the fiscal cliff. that would be terrible for the xhi and for the people he's trying to protect in this. it would be terrible for the middle class. >> at the same time though the way he negotiates and the way he tries to reach that compromise is going to be essential. i think people on the democratic party will be willing to yield on some issues. they'll fight and scream and make good cases for their own position but at the end of the day if the compromise is reasonable and is good and he's gotten major concessions from the right, then i think -- >> i g
with hundreds of billions in tax hikes that could tank the economy, boehner staked out this position on behalf of his caucus. >> for the purposes of bipartisan agreement that begins to solve the problem we're willing to accept new revenue under the right conditions. what matters is where the increase revenue comes from and what type of reform comes with it. >> eliot: a few hours earlier harry reid also called for compromise. >> it's better to dance than to fight. it's better to work together. everything doesn't have to be a fight. everyone should comprehend, especially my senate friends that legislation is the art of compromise and consensus building. >> eliot: but all the political happy talk wasn't enough to soothe the markets with two years of political gridlock behind us and an uncertain future ahead the dow jones industrial average dropped down nearly 313 points for the for time in a year. i'm joined by richard socarides deputy director of the 1996 clinton-gore campaign and former lgbt wider to president clinton and president of equality matters. long with sam seder host of "ring of fire"
to david axelrod, gym messina. but i think the economy was getting better and people ultimately said i want to give this guy another four years to finish the job. >> here's one thing that i don't think was a factor in the last week. the hurricane on the east coast. if there was a factor in the last week, i believe it was mitt romney going into ohio, lying to ohio about something ohio voters know the truth about on this sending jeep jobs to china and to lie straight to the voters who know it's not true, who are related to the workers, whose jobs were not going to china was a deadly move by romney. >> we know that three out of four ohio voters thought the economy was doing very poorly. they were not that excited about what's going on because it's tough out there. but when it comes to policy, six out of ten supported the bailout of the auto industry and to your point they knew on the ground, they knew in their bones what was going on and they knew that mitt romney was lying to them. so that goes to i think another really exciting thing here. money matters and in down ballot races it can destro
apologizes for america and they said the economy was worsening when actually it's not worsening. it's getting better, not fast enough. they just again and again were not in tune with the -- whether it's polls, whether attitudes towards women. it was 1950s ver sus 2012. so it's not surprising to me they feel dumbfounded now. they ran a campaign that was predicated on a lot of false assumptions and also false assertions about the president. >> it must have been confounding to realize that the guy they said was not one of us, michael, was somehow the other, turned out to be the leader of the country. >> well, yeah. >> that's a big mistake to make. >> slight mistake there. >> that's a big mistake. >> it's a very big mistake and i think, again, and i said this when i was rnc chairman, the responsibility of the party is not to go after obama but to go after the policies that he's defining for 9 nation and make the counter argument. when we fail to do that, much to david's point, you do come off tin eared, you do come off deaf to exactly what people are thinking. it's not enough to say that the econ
this economy working for the vast majority of americans and how to get people back to work. we ought to be having that debate and they've got to push hard simply to get on the agenda. >> it's amazing a great point and shows why the president is not remotely progressive. he's having the debate totally on republican grounds as if they won. no no, no! we won! we won! we should be talking about jobs, increasing taxes. i'm not entered in $3 trillion in spending cuts. the republicans want that, good luck to you. you're right, you got to fight super hard, otherwise you'll lose on social security and tax cuts for the rich. 80% of that grand bargain is devastatingly bad for progressives and the middle class. we appreciate you joining us, bob. >> my pleasure. >> all right. now, when we come back, you know there's more drama with the generals right? now we have the other other woman. >> the widening scandal has now turned its focus squarely toward jill kelly who may play a part in bringing down petraeus, allen and now an f.b.i. agent she knew. >> you know the real problem? jill kelley getting t
this time. >> obama: well, two years ago the economy was in a different situation. what i said at the time is what i meant, which is this was an one-time proposition. >> cenk: so there you go, the bush tax cuts for the rich are going away, no question. yeah here comes the bad news. later in that answer he did have a lot of caveat. let's watch that. >> obama: i think we can simplify our tax system, make it more efficient eliminate loopholes and deductions that have a distorting affect on our economy. i believe that we have to continue to take a serious look at how we reform our entitlements. >> cenk: all right, two huge problems. once they start talking about loopholes and deductions, that means maybe the rates stay where we are we take away some loopholes and deductions yeah, that's what we do. that's the ticket. the second part? indictmententimes, i'm coming for you. they asked jay carney, hey this $250,000, people making above that they're going to have the tax increase right right? aah, maybe maybe not. >> how open is he to the notion that has been put forward by tim kaine that maybe yo
with the meltdown. >> trying to sniff out the criteria trading. it is central to the economy and central to the market. they haven't figured out a way yet to stop what they don't like. dennis: do we already know 100% of the details of dodd-frank and what it will do? >> a large percentage. this list o is still a substantl amount, but even more these rules are subject to the lack of cost-benefit analysis. we have a long period of uncertainty ahead of us, unfortunately. dennis: on one hand they're told to take down everything and then they're being yelled at for not lending. wilbanks continued to be bad guys in the obama administration? >> i hope not, dennis. we need wall street for a modest recovery, no way around that. dennis: we are beating up one of the engines are supposed to get us out of it. thank you for being with us. cheryl: it is time for your "west coast minute." governors in colorado and oregon want the wind power tax rates to be extended by congress. the tax breaks that too set to y the end of the year. opponents argued discussed in the federal government a billion dollars per
economy. a stronger economy means more revenue which is what the president seeks. because the american people expect us to find common ground we're willing to accept some additional revenues via tax reform. >> cenk: now that sounds good, right? additional revenues, it sounds like--no no, no. in other words what he's saying i might close some of the loopholes and then i'll put loopholes within the loopholes but i won't touch tax rates. if i was president obama john i got news for you. we won you lost. you want to do it again? you wanting to through this two years from now? have at it, hoss, go for it. no no, i said we would be getting rid of the bush tax cuts for the rich. i did not stutter. i got elected. i got 320 electoral votes that i'll ram down your throat. no we're going to raise taxes on the rich just like i said. we'll go to the pre-bush tax cut era. that's what we're going to do. don't give me your weak sauce about tax reform. he says, no, no. >> garner republican support for new revenues, the president must be willing to reduce spending and shore up entitlement programs that
cliff would, in the short term, drive the u.s. economy back into recession and push the unemployment rate up to 9.1% by the end of the fourth quarter next year. the report also projects that after the initial shock, growth would return and the unemployment rate would shrink to 5.5%, but not until 2018. house speaker john boehner yesterday remained steadfast in his position on raising taxes. >> i remain optimistic we're going to be able to find common ground avoid this fiscal cliff and find a way to work together. >> by when? january 1st? >> i would hope so. >> the president is talking about specific increases. he campaigned on specific increases and tax rates from 35% to 39% for those making more than $250,000. so is that on the table right now? >> raising taxes on small business people is the wrong prescription given where our economy is. >> is it on the table to talk about? >> i made clear -- >> to have the wealthier americans pitch in. >> -- that raising tax rates is unacceptable. frankly, it couldn't pass the house. >> you will talk about it even if it's the wrong approach. >> of
